Beat the winter weather on your next date night and cuddle up by the light of a roaring fireplace. Bring your flame to one of these toasty NYC date destinations and watch the sparks of romance fly.
The Peacock pours on the British charm throughout airy parlor rooms adorned with chandeliers and whimsical wallpaper. The Peacock – along with its medieval-casual sister pub, The Shakespeare; and the brand-new outpost of the NYC speakeasy, The Raines Law Room – are all located in The William: a modern boutique hotel in Midtown East. Here, you’ll have two options for fireside romance. Find the hidden entrance to Raines Law Room to canoodle with cocktails by the library fireplace, or sink your spoons into an uni butter-infused crab risotto hearthside in the Peacock Dining Room.
Head for the woods without leaving the city at Camp, the lodge-like Cobble Hill bar where you can warm your hands by the fire, play board games, make s’mores (really), and feel like a kid again – leaning in for that first sleep-away camp kiss. Log cabin walls, exposed brick, and a mounted deer head add to the bar’s outdoorsy ambiance. Grab a creative cocktail and challenge your companion to a date-night game of Jenga.
